Video: Create and manage teams
As an account administrator, you can view, create, edit and delete teams in the account from the Teams tab in the Account administration tool.
A team can include any number of account members, and an account member can be added to any number of teams. Teams can be competency based (such as IT, marketing, sales, or design) where team members work across different projects with a need to follow up on the work for the team as a whole. Teams can also be cross-functional, representing groups of people who for some reason need to keep in touch with each other.
All team members have access to the My Teams tab where each member can communicate within the team and see the work to be done by team members across workspaces.
Assignments from a specific workspace are only displayed if that workspace is published to the Directory and if the boards do not have access rights set for groups.
